Aykroyd Confirms ‘Ghostbusters 3’

Dan Aykroyd has confirmed that the third Ghostbusters movie is all set to go before the cameras — with the original cast in place to reprise the characters from the 1984 film.

The movie star reveals Sigourney Weaver has signed on for the project, alongside himself, Bill MurrayHarold Ramis and Ernie Hudson — and the film could start shooting this winter.

Aykroyd still fears the project could “blow up” “at any second” but he hopes the new film will usher in a new generation of all-girl Ghostbusters.

He tells the Los Angeles Times, “I’d like it to be a passing-of-the-torch movie. Let’s revisit the old characters briefly and happily and have them there as family, but let’s pass it on to a new generation.”

And the actor wants Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku to consider becoming part of the Ghostbusters family: “I think they’re amazing.”
